Man Arrested After Avoiding DUI Checkpoint and Barricading Himself in Van Nuys Apartment
A man was arrested after avoiding a DUI checkpoint and barricading himself in a Van Nuys apartment Tuesday morning.
Two men and a female in a dark colored pickup truck fled the Los Angeles Police Department checkpoint around 2 a.m., police at the scene said.
During a short pursuit that ended when the truck was left in a Coin Laundry parking lot about half a mile away, an LAPD vehicle crashed into a median in the street.
The male and female passengers were apprehended, but the driver barricaded himself in an apartment.
Police K-9 units and tactical teams worked to extricate the man.
He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and felony evading by 8:30 a.m.
